ADDIS 2 release 2

11 Jul 2014 — Gert van Valkenhoef

We are proud to announce the second preview version of our web-based redevelopment of ADDIS, ADDIS 2 release 2. Although this is a very early preview, and still far from perfect, we invite everyone to give it a try at addis.drugis.org. This release introduces basic network meta-analysis, using a random effects consistency model. Unfortunately models for the assessment of heterogeneity and inconsistency are not yet available. The functionality developed in both release 1 and release 2 is showcased in this video.

The next release will focus on providing more insight into the data that is available in each data set by letting you browse studies and critique their design. We also plan to make improvements to the benefit-risk analysis module and improve the usability of ADDIS 2 in general.


ADDIS 2 release 1

25 Apr 2014 — Gert van Valkenhoef

We are proud to announce the first preview version of our web-based redevelopment of ADDIS, ADDIS 2 release 1. Although this is a very early preview, and still far from perfect, we invite everyone to give it a try at addis.drugis.org. This release features the following:

  • Sign in using your Google account.
  • Create your own projects, or browse someone else's.
  • Base your projects on one of two example datasets: a systematic review of anti-depressants, or a market authorization submission for an anti-hypertensive.
  • Define outcomes and interventions.
  • Create benefit-risk analyses based on individual trials.

Both of the example datasets were also available as examples in ADDIS 1, and as browsing the studies is not yet possible in ADDIS 2, it might be useful to have ADDIS 1 running alongside.


drugis.org revised and revamped

15 Jan 2014 — Gert van Valkenhoef

We are proud to announce the completely revised and revamped website for drugis.org! The site has been rebuilt from the ground up to make it look more modern, and to make it easier to update. The content has also been revised in light of the ADDIS 2 project, which is now in full swing thanks to our funding from the IMI GetReal consortium.

In case you're curious, this is what the site looked like in the past:


mcda.drugis.org launched

14 Jan 2014 — Gert van Valkenhoef

We are happy to announce the official launch of mcda.drugis.org, our web-based tool for multiple criteria decision analysis. The tool supports the elicitation of partial value functions and criteria trade-offs using several methods, and makes use of our R packages and the Patavi web service wrapper to compute the MCDA results.

Please keep in mind that mcda.drugis.org is still in beta, so don't expect perfection just yet. This is the first component of the ADDIS 2 project to be launched. Its development has allowed us to prove the feasibility of a number of our architectural decisions, as well as further define the components and frameworks that will be used in ADDIS 2.
